Fun fast technical trails in Kanata. The South March Conservation area has been home to mountain bikers in Kanata for over 20 years. The OMBA was formed to ensure continued access to mountain bikers to this area and we have succeeded. The area has become very popular especially on weekends. If you ride here please be courteous to the hikers, walkers, bird watchers, Cub Scouts, trail runners and many other people who we share the trail with.
